A Slice of Americana
Given that I quit smoking Marlboro cigarettes a few years back, well, actually I quit smoking altogether, I still enjoy watching these old advertisements from the late 60s and early 70s. Yes, and I've been aware for quite a number of years that a lot of these actors died due to the products they sold for Philip Morris. I only want to keep my comment within the context of the music used in their advertising during the latter half of the 1960s.
I especially enjoyed the last video #9 labeled Marlboro Man Sings. The string section in particular gives additional credence to the man who is "goin' home." The song is beautifully written and arranged for the commercial, and it provided me the lovely memories of simplier times.
If anyone out there know where I can find this music piece please contact me. Thank you.
